About the Event

The 13th Annual 1stLt Travis L. Manion Memorial Event, to commemorate this outstanding young man’s life, is scheduled for Monday, August 31st 2020, at the Doylestown Country Club in Doylestown, PA. It will be a memorable and fun-filled event that includes the “Team Travis” golf outing, lunch, cocktails, dinner, prizes, and an exciting auction. The event benefits Travis Manion Foundation, a qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
The mission of Travis Manion Foundation is to empower veterans and families of the fallen to develop character in future generations. Before Travis left for his second and final deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, he explained why he had to return to the war in five simple words: "If Not Me, Then Who..." These words have inspired a national movement that is growing rapidly. Veterans and families of the fallen are spearheading this movement to build a nation of heroes in which character, leadership and service are in action every day.
